Re: Bacharach Baroque by The Renaissance (complete album)

This album is completely new to me and although it's light and frothy I found it a joy to listen to, as refreshing as the first cup of coffee of the day.

Re: The Sun Also Rises: new Bacharach & Federer song

It took a few listens but I really love this song. I'd also like to hear someone else sing it.

Re: Blue Umbrella with 2 bonus tracks

I think '21st Century Man' is a beguiling gem and the old Bacharach trait of the repeated motif fade ending featuring the flugelhorn and strings wouldn't have sounded out of place on one of his A&M albums from the late 60s and early 70s. As for 'A Quiet Place', although it's an enjoyable listen with...

However, maybe it's just me but I can only make out about 80% of the lyric.
The video has been uploaded onto YouTube again, this time with the text of the lyrics of the song's chorus but, alas, not the two verses.

Re: The Great Divide

Those are seriously good musicians and after many years of being familiar with their names through the credits on CD sleeves it's a pleasure to actually watch them in the studio making that song come alive.

Re: 'Blue Umbrella'..'We Go Way Back'...'Whistling in the Dark' ..'Bacharach / Tashian

Burt and Daniel have mentioned in interviews the possibility of an album, let's hope so, their collaboration shows truly great promise ! 'blue' I concur wholeheartedly and I wonder if the term 'shows truly great promise' has ever been used in connection with a 92 year old before? 'We Go Way Back' d...

Re: 'Midnight Watch' ...new Bacharach / Tashian song.

To my knowledge, no one has yet to record a 'Sings the Songs of Bacharach and Bayer Sager' album and I can't imagine that anyone ever will, despite them writing, with the help and assistance at various times of Peter Allen, Christopher Cross, Neil Diamond and Bruce Roberts, several US Top 40 hits. ...

Re: Ennio Morricone 1928 - 2020

I can't imagine how any fan of Bacharach's music could not love this beguiling and excuisitely orchestrated piece by Morricone.

Re: 'Midnight Watch' ...new Bacharach / Tashian song.

Once I'd heard 'Bells of St. Augustine' a few times I felt the urge to share the song with family and friends. I don't feel the same urge with 'Midnight Watch'.

I felt absolutely gutted when I heard the news. There's so many but this is a personal favourite theme of his.

Re: Johnny Mandel 1925 - 2020

His score for the movie 'I Want To Live' from the late 50s was very jazzy and featured baritone sax virtuoso Gerry Mulligan.

Re: First released recording of 'Knowing When To Leave'

I think that if musician Frank P didn't like 'It's Turkey Lurkey Time' it was probably less to do with the quality of the song and more to do with the complexity of the score during the extended dance sequence of that number. Listening to Bambi McMormick's warm, mellifluous tones immediately made me...

I sincerely hope that the Maestro himself visits this forum and sees all these heartfelt messages. I stumbled upon this video message from him posted on YouTube on his birthday to his Japanese fans regarding the cancellation of the tour.
